Characterization of Interfaces in Metal Matrix Composites Using the Slice Compression Test


We conduct a finite element analysis of the slice compression test [13] applied to metal-matrix composites. This test, designed to characterize interfaces in composite materials, involves pressing a composite material specimen on a soft plate so that fibers are forced to protrude and intrude into the soft plate leaving a permanent deformation. We focus on… (More)
